CyanogenMod 9 RC2 Released for Various Devices

While the XDA Portal has seemingly been Jelly Bean, Jelly Bean, JELLY BEAN as of late, there is still much development work to be done on finalizing and perfecting builds based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. After all, many would rather have a bullet-proof daily driver than an admittedly awesome preview build, which could potentially be a bit buggy.

As such, the CyanogenMod team has now released CyanogenMod 9 Release Candidate 2. Users can expect RC2 to be quite stable. It also adds support for new devices. As described on the CyanogenMod blog:

This release serves to stabilize CM9 as a product that you’d let your mom use, as well as add support for the following devices:

* Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (all variants)
* Samsung Galaxy SII on AT&T – Skyrocket
* Samsung Galaxy SII on T-Mobile – Hercules
* Samsung Galaxy Note on AT&T
* Samsung Galaxy SIII – i9300 (International GSM model)

In addition to the new devices, those which were previously supported in earlier CM9 builds retain official support. Currently supported devices, courtesy of a discussion thread created by XDA Forum Member safariking are:
